A Perfect Gift for Mom: Harrison's Gift Cards
Because Mother's Day falls on the same weekend as Penn State Spring Commencement, a Harrison's Gift Card for Mom is a particularly great gift idea this year. Give her a gift card on Mother's Day and schedule the time out for a convenient time after the busy weekend. Everyone wins!
You can purchase gift cards online, over the phone, or in person at the restaurant, and we can mail them to you or directly to the recipient-whichever you prefer! Stop by our website, give us a call, or pop into the dining room and pick up the perfect gift for Mom!
PSU Graduation Weekend - Changes to Know About
With the Penn State Graduation weekend arriving this Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, we wanted to put out an alert to all of our local patrons. If you've lived in the State College area for any length of time, you probably already know how much the town is affected by the families of thousands of graduates arriving for a celebratory weekend. So, although we are always telling you to come see us the rest of the year, this one time, we are telling you the weekend of May 8, 9, and 10 might not be the best time to dine with us if you are looking for your usual Harrison's experience.
We're proud of all of our PSU students who are graduating this spring, and we look forward to serving them, their families, and friends with great meals on the commencement weekend. Because of the great demand for reservations from graduates and their families, however, we want to let you, our local customers, know how we will be helping the students and their families celebrate and how it might affect our service to you.
Friday, May 8: Reservation availability is currently very limited for dinner Friday, May 8. We will be serving our regular dinner menu as usual, but if you would like dinner at a quieter time, you may prefer visiting us on a different night. Prep times for carry-out orders may be longer than usual.
Saturday, May 9: This is the biggest day of all for Penn State Graduation, with ceremonies for different Colleges running throughout the day. Because of the number of large graduation parties we will be serving, we recommend that our local patrons opt to dine with us on a different day. If you do want to, please check hours and menus as they are different on this day and carry-out will not be available.
Sunday, May 10: On Sunday, May 10, daytime reservations are likewise very limited due to the morning commencement ceremonies at Penn State. We still have a nice availability for dinner time on Sunday, but we strongly recommend making a reservation if you plan to join us for a Mother's Day celebration. Prep time for carry-out orders may be longer than usual.
Many of you who have worked with our Catering Department have gotten to know Marissa Hockenberry since she began working with us in 2013. We were sad to bid adieu to Marissa this month but are excited for her as she embarks on new adventures near her hometown of York, PA, where she is returning to be closer to her extended family.
At the same time, we are pleased to introduce our new Catering Operations Manager, Dan Batcho. Dan is a Penn State graduate and has been in the hospitality industry first as a server, then restaurant manager, event coordinator and most recently as a catering manager here in State College. We feel very fortunate to have found someone with such a wealth of experience and outstanding customer service skills. Dan has been learning our catering processes and getting to know all of our catering customers for the last few weeks. Dan is a great addition to the Harrison's Catering Team, and we look forward to you meeting him!
Dan and the rest of the Harrison's Catering Team can help you with all your catering needs, this summer and beyond. Business & work events, family reunions, picnics, bridal and baby showers, and rehearsal dinners or pre-wedding lunches are just some of events that we can help make easier on you.
You may reach Dan at the same phone number (814.237.4422) and email (firstname.lastname@example.org or info@HarrisonsMenu.com) that you have always used in the past to plan your next great event.
